Simple background image question


#1

My TVML layout looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<document>
<head>
</head>
  <mainTemplate>
    <background>
      <img src="https://www.myserver.com/images/myimage.jpg" />
    </background>
    <menuBar>
      <section>
        <menuItem>…</menuItem>
        <menuItem>…</menuItem>
      </section>
    </menuBar>
  </mainTemplate>
</document>

…but what if I want to reference that background image path within my tvOS app resources itself? Like

    <background>
      <img src="pkg:/images/myimage.jpg" />
    </background>

This has to be simple, but I’ve yet to find an answer in online docs. Thanks!

@perrycbrown Do you still have issues with this?


#3

Yes, I haven’t found a way to directly reference images within the app itself. The only thing I’ve seen so far is using a ResourceLoader that depends upon the name of the image in an XML file that is loaded with a page. That seems too complicated to me.

Any way to directly reference an image in the app’s resources?

Since no one has an answer to this question, I assume there is no answer to it.

Too bad. It would have been so nice to allow TVML to reference in-app resources – like images – more simply.
